Ubuntu Networking :: Program Transmits Whole Graphical Interface Slowly - Command Line With Computers

Jan 18, 2011

I need to use some PCs located on my university from home through the internet. I am using a program called Teamviewer [URL]... The problem is that this program transmits the whole graphical interface, which is slow, but I just need to use the command line with these computers. I am aware of ssh, but my university won't give me access to theses computers over the internet.

Server :: Modifying Debian Config Through Web-based Interface?

Jun 25, 2010

I am wanting some pointers/direction as to how I could run a administrative web service on our debian box to facilitate the management of the debian server (ie, creating iptable rules, modifying interface parameters, viewing dhcp leases).

I'm trying to replace an existing redhat server on our network which is performing as a gateway (unfortunately not meeting our needs) and this has a web-based management. It appears to be running 'asp' pages but these pages provide me no leads as to how it actually modifies the server's conf files.

Debian :: Automatically Start Graphical (SDL) Program As Root On Non-graphical Debian?

Mar 3, 2009

I'm not a Linux noob, but I am far from guru. I'm running a single board computer with a slightly customized Debian Etch (customized by the SBC vendor). No Gnome/KDE/X installed. My application is a control application which uses SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to paint some basic graphics on the VGA. I need to run it as root because the application calls iopl() to access an IO port.If I run my application manually from the command line, life is sweet. From Googling around, I found, and hence I:1) Created a script in /etc/init.d2) Executed "update-rc.d scriptName defaults" to link the script into the boot sequenceAll very straightforward. My application starts at boot. But when I try to SSH/SFTP into the SBC, I get "Connection refused". So I can't manage the SBC anymore, and this is a big problem. I am not sure if it's relevant, but my application starts before the SSH daemon.My script looked like:

case "$1" in
echo "Starting my application"

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 - Can Use Any Graphical Interface ?

Jan 8, 2010

I've installed (well, I founded it installed yet in my new job...) Centos 5.3 (Final) version (kernel 2.6.18-164.el5 on an x86_64), but I only can work fron the command line. I don't know if I can use any graphical interface (I've worked with SuSe years ago and it start its graphical interface automaticaly when you reboot the system).

I have to configure sendmail. For it, I download and installed webmin and usermin and start them, but I don't know how to continue...

Ubuntu :: Start The X Graphical Interface Without Using GDM?

Jun 15, 2010

I would like to start the x graphical interface without using GDM. I may be using the wrong terms here for x. Maybe it is called xdm or x11 or something.) I have set GDM to login without asking me for a password (I am the only user of this machine.) Sometimes, it still pops up the GDM login screen and if I select "actions" "reboot" (my memory tells me that is what it was,) it will reboot without asking to login, but the fonts are all wrong. If I select "apps" "restart" and it DOESN'T ask for my login, all is OK.

I would like to uninstall GDM, and place whatever GDM uses to start the graphical interface into the /ect/rc2.d startup scripts. I know GDM does other stuff then just logs me in and starts the graphical user interface, and I think I would like to maintain some of that, but I think I would like to manually insert the startup sequence in the startup scripts. Question one, can someone tell me where to look to find out what GDM is doing now so I can attempt to replicate it?

#2, does someone know the startup script line(s) to start the x server and graphical interface without GDM? I think this has bees asked before, but it seems hard to search older posts.

Fedora :: Other Graphical Interface For Package Management?

Apr 12, 2011

I've gone though the system purging/removing what I don't require on my Fedora install using the graphical tool in gnome 3. I then used package-cleanup --leaves to clean up some cruft left behind. yum list installed shows I still have 1031 packages installed, which is about 400 more than similar setups I used to have on Debian, and truthfully on Debian I have more stuff installed that I've still got to install here (gimp, nvidia drivers, etc).

I see a buch of stuff in yum list installed I don't need, so I can use yum remove foo to cleanup some more, but I'm wondering if there's another graphical interface or perhaps and advacned option in the add/remove software application I've been using thus far.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Can't Login After Update - Graphical Interface

Apr 30, 2011

I've updated my ubuntu from 10.10 ==> 11.04. Now I can't login using graphical inerface. System is loading but it stops right before I should see screen with login credentials. When I use ctrl+alt+del it's going to reboot properly, the same when i push the power button it's shutting down. System works fine in failsafex mode so I can assume there's a problem with xserver etc. Using Nvidia 9500GS.

Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?

CentOS 5 :: Graphical Interface For Installing Programs?

Mar 20, 2010

is there any graphical interface for installing programs in linux. Like installers in windows? or it is possible only through terminal?is there experience notes how to install things in linux? after i download something i am completely lost what to do next and how to check if this version is sutable for my version of linux etc. Trying to search internet gives nothing. Also I have this problem that my resolution is too high. so fonts are to small i cannot spend time in linux because my eyes start hurting. I use GNOMEThere are resolutions like 1280 x 960 next is 1440 x 900 1440x900 is sutable for my form of monitor.But 1280 960 is for more square like monitore so if i choose this resolution it looks bad. if i choose 1440 its too little. As it is max resolution for my monitor.In windows i use resolution 1280 x 768 how can i setup that in linux. Also in driver or something it says Ati 3600 series. But i have Ati radeon HD 3730 when i try to choose different versions of ... it says cannot start x server.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Boot Windows Even From The Graphical Interface

Nov 3, 2010

I am having a very strange problem with GRUB: it refuses to boot from certain partitions, and in a very strange way. This is what I've noticed so far:When using GRUB in the default OpenSUSE 11.3 graphical interface and trying to boot it, GRUB almost always gives me Error Message 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure. The GRUB manual says that "This error is returned by the filesystem code to denote an internal error caused by the sanity checks of the filesystem structure on disk not matching what it expects. This is usually caused by a corrupt filesystem or bugs in the code handling it in GRUB. " I've ran fsck on all the partitions and neither of them has any corruption. When I switch to the non-graphical GRUB window, the message changes to Error Message 18: "Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS".

The GRUB manual says that "This error is returned when a read is attempted at a linear block address beyond the end of the BIOS translated area. This generally happens if your disk is larger than the BIOS can handle (512MB for (E)IDE disks on older machines or larger than 8GB in general). " However, I haven't touched any BIOS settings when the problem started to appear, and the BIOS is brand new anyway so it doesn't have such limits. When I try to boot directly from the command line, it roots to the boot partition just fine, but refuses to load the kernel, giving me the error 16 again.

When I try to boot Windows from the non-graphical GRUB list, it gives me the error 18 again, but it always succeeds when I do all the booting directly from the command line. One time I was able to boot Linux from the command line by using rootnoverify instead of root, but never again since then. One time it didn't boot Windows even from the OpenSUSE graphical interface, error 18 again. Sometimes it boots even Linux just fine, but it happens quite rarely now. The problems started appearing just recently, and without any reason that I could think of. I also ran setup again in order to reinstall GRUB, and it worked for one boot, but not any more...

My partition list is like this:
(hd0,0) Windows 7 boot, NTFS, primary
(hd0,1) Windows 7, NTFS, primary
(hd0,2) Windows XP, NTFS, primary
(hd0,3) Extended
(hd0,4) /root, EXT3, logical
(hd0,5) /home, EXT3, logical
(hd0,6) swap, logical
(hd0,7) /boot, EXT2, logical

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA Drivers Kill Graphical Interface?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm quite new to ubuntu and I don't speak the language yet (sorry), I'm also new to this forum, is it okay to just post a request for help? Normally I can find all the info I need with a google search but I don't even know where to start with this one.

I seem to have killed the entire installation and I'm not sure what to do. I'm not even sure what information to provide. I'm running 10.4 LTS on a pretty standard laptop, i3-330M CPU, nvidia geforce GT 325M (I mention this because I think it's part of the problem). I just re-installed clean from the live CD (I also have a windows partition), everything worked fine. Then I downloaded and installed all updates the system suggested and I also used the proprietary drivers gizmo to DL and activate the nvidia package. When I restarted the system the OS would not start, recovery mode will not start either.

I get my grub screen as usual, select Ubuntu, it moves to a blank screen with blinking curser as usual, then goes completely grey and appears to hang. I think the graphical interface is not initialising. I'm assuming it's either a problem with the nvidia driver directly or the nvidia driver has done something to xserver that prevents it from starting. It might also be one of the updates, or I did think perhaps it was just the updates taking effect on restart, I left it hanging on the grey screen for an hour and still nothing, it couldn't take longer than that could it? I can dismount grub to a command prompt but it doesn't seem to understand normal commands.

Server :: Unable To Access Graphical User Interface

Jun 20, 2011

I have a Linux mail server (Fedora). This server was set up long before i joined this organization. Now I have these issues I would request assistance:

1. I am not able to access the Graphical User Interface(gui) on this machine. Startx does not work. I have also tried using combination keys alt+ctrl+f...keys but no progress. As a result am not bale to do some tasks.

2. The clamav that is on the machine has since become outdated. Efforts to update it to latest versions have failed. How do i get to update clamav and protect my system?

3. Because of not being able to access the gui as well as the inability to update clamav have led to my server apparently sending spam mail which in turn have led to my public ip being black listed in a number of sites. Now how can i secure this server so that it stops sending the spam mail and hence avoid future blacklisting?(NB am using postfix and the server sits behind a router which connects to the Internet)

4. I have observed that the server has some iptables rules set but everytime the server restarts the rules stop. I have to manually restart them again to run. How do I sort this?
